Dany N’Guessan is determined to put a frustrating first few months with Rovers behind him and fire the club up League One.

N’Guessan injured his foot during the pre-season friendly with Wolverhampton Wanderers, keeping him out of action until being named among the subs for the trip to Gillingham earlier this month.

The Frenchman was introduced after just seven minutes against Oldham Athletic on Saturday after Andy Williams suffered a suspected broken nose.

He impressively grew into the game and had two excellent chances to win it for Rovers.

And N’Guessan says he will only grow stronger, the more time he gets on the pitch.

“I was out for a long time, I need to have my sharpness back but it will come back,” the 28-year-old told the Star.“It has been very frustrating.

“Before the injury, I was not playing a few months before that.

“I have just wanted to take my time, coming back stronger and stronger.

“Before I signed to Doncaster, I was with a fitness coach but it isn’t the same as when you kick the ball.

“I just wanted to be ready. We will see now if I play or not but I will keep working hard.

“I feel good. I would not say I feel 100 per cent fit but I feel good. And you get fitter as you play games.”

N’Guessan made one chance for himself as he robbed the ball 40 yards out and powered into the box before drilling narrowly over the bar.

And he says Rovers supporters can expect more of the same.

He said: “I like to take people on, I don’t really like to have my back to goal.

“I think my strength is one v one.”
